The best Nintendo trailers of E3 2011

Mario 3DS, Zelda: Skyward Sword, Luigi's Mansion 2...

Nintendo shocked, stunned and confused at its E3 press conference this year with the reveal - or non-reveal as it were - of its new console the Nintendo Wii U.

The platform holder teased a new backwards compatible, HD capable console but only showed off its controller; an iPad-esque tablet featuring two thumb sticks, face buttons, a d-pad, a built-in camera, two trigger buttons on the left and right shoulders, an accelerometer, rumble feature, a microphone, speakers and most importantly a 6.2 inch in-built screen (phew!)

Fortunately though there were plenty of new trailers and gameplay videos for surprise announcements such as Luigi's Mansion 2, plus Mario 3DS, Mario Kart and Skyward Sword. We've herded a selection of our favourite trailers from E3 which you can check in the playlist below (go full screen to watch them in HD).
